    LG 48CX

    The 55" C9 and the 48" CX partially share some of the same stand components (there are two pieces to the stand) The front piece that you see is a little less wide and about 30% skinnier than the 55" while the back part (the part the actually screws into the back of the TV) is 100% the exact same.

    LG 48CX

    Just dropping a quick note that today I "upgraded" to the LG 48CX from a 55" LG C9.. Prior to the C9 I was using an LG C6 (55" Curved) OLED and as I suspected while I was fine with the 55" as a Desktop Monitor the smaller size of the 48" is much much nicer. I would even say having used the Dell...

    Questions for C9 OLED guys

    Better control of grey color banding.. in general the colors are more uniform across the entire screen from the C6.. its brighter than the C6 which helps with HDR. Even Image Retention seems better so far as well.

    Questions for C9 OLED guys

    I replaced my C6 with a C9 55” for my main PC/Console gaming setup. I use a pretty big desk and have done the 55” OLED for some years now. The C9 is a nice upgrade over the C6 but I do miss the curved screen. At 3 feet viewing distance the curve does help keep the picture more centered. Upside...

    2020 OLED monitor thread

    I have a 55" C6 Curved as my main PC display since 2016 and its been rock solid no burn in use it every day as mixed PC office work and gaming on my PC and Xbox/PS4. Left it on for 4 days on a static screen by accident and ran pixel refresh and no burn in. I also own a 65" E7 in my Living Room...

    The perfect 4K 43” monitor! Soon! Asus XG438Q ROG

    I left the house for 4 days and came back and my OLED was stuck on a Trend Micro screen.. I must have forgotten to turn it off and somehow the PC kept the monitor awake. I thought I would have burn in for sure but running the Pixel Refresh and there was zero burn in. Sure there are ways to get...

    The perfect 4K 43” monitor! Soon! Asus XG438Q ROG

    Its really crazy to see these awful picture quality/black level $2000+ monitors hitting the market when OLED's are almost perfect minus VRR/FreeSync at high refresh rates. Hopefully the LG will adopt HDMI 2.1 and push 144FPS at 4K with HDR..but since AMD isnt developing GPU's fast enough to do...

    I walked into microcenter today

    I can go to and get a brand new in box 77" 2018 LG OLED for $3899 which would blow this display away in just about every respects except for G-Sync.

    Sweet Baby Jeebus Alienware 55" 4k120 OLED Displayport

    I've used an LG 2016 C series 55" OLED as my primary PC monitor in my home office for all sorts of use from business work to gaming (Xbox, PC, PS4 etc.) and have zero burn in. Lots of static content but realistically even normal PC use you are constantly shifting pixels no matter how long you...

    Best Current 55 " OLED PANEL for PC monitor on the market for the price?

    I've had my 2016 LG OLED C series for 2 years using it every day as my primary PC Monitor for desktop and gaming with zero burn in. Much like Plasma between the built in protection and some small amount of common sense its a great overall monitor. Some people see Image Retention and think its...

    ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme Threadripper Mobo Review @ [H]

    With Dual Titan Xp in the PCIe_16 Slots I was unable to get my U.2 Drive (Intel 750) to work with the ROG 10Gbe card in any of the other PCIe slots even with PCIeX8/X4 Mode set to X4. Asus support was unable to help with this either as they have been silent. Once I remove the 10Gbe card the...

    So who is pre-purchasing the X399 motherboards and Threadripper CPU's tomorrow?

    So I got the AREION 10G card to work.. moved it to the 4th PCIE slot (PCIEX8/X4_4) and set the BIOS to X4 bandwidth so U.2 Port would still be enabled. The card is fine but the U.2 port is apparently disabled. I can only see my Intel 750 SSD if I remove the 10G card physically. Flashed to...

    So who is pre-purchasing the X399 motherboards and Threadripper CPU's tomorrow?

    Got my 1950x and Asus Zenith built today. The system would not post with the 10G Ethernet card in PciE 3.0 x8 (2nd slot). Had to remove it to get system to post with my 2 Titan Xp (both in the 3.0 x16 slots) I didn't get time to play with it much but I will revisit once 10 is installed and...
